Product Overview

The AC164137-1 is a demonstration and development daughter board for MRF49XA ISM band Sub GHz RF transceiver. The MRF49XA is an ideal choice for low cost, high volume, low data rate (less then 256kbps), two way and short range wireless applications. This transceiver can be used in the unlicensed 433MHz, 868MHz and 915MHz frequency bands, and for applications looking for FCC, IC or ETSI certification in the ISM band. The daughter board can plug into multiple Microchip technology demonstration and development boards. For example, for 8bit microcontroller development using the PIC18 explorer board (DM183032) or 16bit microcontroller development using the explorer 16 development board (DM240001). A simple demonstration program has been written for the PIC18 explorer Board.
